And SaulH7586 spokeH1696 to JonathanH3129 his son,H1121 and to allH3605 his servants,H5650 that they should killH4191 David.H1732
But JonathanH3083 Saul'sH7586 sonH1121 delightedH2654 muchH3966 in David:H1732 and JonathanH3083 toldH5046 David,H1732 saying,H559 SaulH7586 my fatherH1 seeksH1245 to killH4191 you: nowH6258 therefore, I prayH4994 you, take heedH8104 to yourself untilH5704 the morning,H1242 and abideH3427 in a secretH5643 place, and hideH2244 yourself:
And I will goH3318 out and standH5975 besideH3027 my fatherH1 in the fieldH7704 whereH834 you are, and I will communeH1696 with my fatherH1 of you; and whatH4100 I see,H7200 that I will tellH5046 you.
And JonathanH3083 spokeH1696 goodH2896 of DavidH1732 to SaulH7586 his father,H1 and saidH559 to him, Let not the kingH4428 sinH2398 against his servant,H5650 against David;H1732 becauseH3588 he has not sinnedH2398 against you, and becauseH3588 his worksH4639 have been to you-ward veryH3966 good:H2896
For he did putH7760 his lifeH5315 in his hand,H3709 and slewH5221 the Philistine,H6430 and the LORDH3068 workedH6213 a greatH1419 salvationH8668 for allH3605 Israel:H3478 you sawH7200 it, and did rejoice:H8055 whyH4100 then will you sinH2398 against innocentH5355 blood,H1818 to slayH4191 DavidH1732 withoutH2600 a cause?H2600
And SaulH7586 listenedH8085 to the voiceH6963 of Jonathan:H3083 and SaulH7586 swore,H7650 As the LORDH3068 lives,H2416 he shall not be slain.H4191
And JonathanH3083 calledH7121 David,H1732 and JonathanH3083 showedH5046 him allH3605 thoseH428 things.H1697 And JonathanH3083 broughtH935 DavidH1732 to Saul,H7586 and he was in his presence,H6440 as in timesH865 H8543 past.H8032
And there was warH4421 again:H3254 and DavidH1732 wentH3318 out, and foughtH3898 with the Philistines,H6430 and slewH5221 them with a greatH1419 slaughter;H4347 and they fledH5127 from him.
And the evilH7451 spiritH7307 from the LORDH3068 was on Saul,H7586 as he satH3427 in his houseH1004 with his javelinH2595 in his hand:H3027 and DavidH1732 playedH5059 with his hand.H3027
And SaulH7586 soughtH1245 to smiteH5221 DavidH1732 even to the wallH7023 with the javelin:H2595 but he slippedH6362 away out of Saul'sH7586 presence,H6440 and he smoteH5221 the javelinH2595 into the wall:H7023 and DavidH1732 fled,H5127 and escapedH4422 that night.H3915
SaulH7586 also sentH7971 messengersH4397 to David'sH1732 house,H1004 to watchH8104 him, and to slayH4191 him in the morning:H1242 and MichalH4324 David'sH1732 wifeH802 toldH5046 him, saying,H559 IfH518 you saveH4422 not your lifeH5315 to night,H3915 to morrowH4279 you shall be slain.H4191
So MichalH4324 letH3381 DavidH1732 downH3381 throughH1157 a window:H2474 and he went,H3212 and fled,H1272 and escaped.H4422
And MichalH4324 tookH3947 an image,H8655 and laidH7760 it in the bed,H4296 and putH7760 a pillowH3523 of goats'H5795 hair for his bolster,H4763 and coveredH3680 it with a cloth.H899
And when SaulH7586 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to takeH3947 David,H1732 she said,H559 He is sick.H2470
And SaulH7586 sentH7971 the messengersH4397 again to seeH7200 David,H1732 saying,H559 BringH5927 him up to me in the bed,H4296 that I may slayH4191 him.
And when the messengersH4397 were comeH935 in, behold,H2009 there was an imageH8655 in the bed,H4296 with a pillowH3523 of goats'H5795 hair for his bolster.H4763
And SaulH7586 saidH559 to Michal,H4324 WhyH4100 have you deceivedH7411 me so,H3602 and sentH7971 away my enemy,H341 that he is escaped?H4422 And MichalH4324 answeredH559 Saul,H7586 He saidH559 to me, Let me go;H7971 whyH4100 should I killH4191 you?
So DavidH1732 fled,H1272 and escaped,H4422 and cameH935 to SamuelH8050 to Ramah,H7414 and toldH5046 him allH3605 that SaulH7586 had doneH6213 to him. And he and SamuelH8050 wentH3212 and dwelledH3427 in Naioth.H5121
And it was toldH5046 Saul,H7586 saying,H559 Behold,H2009 DavidH1732 is at NaiothH5121 in Ramah.H7414
And SaulH7586 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to takeH3947 David:H1732 and when they sawH7200 the companyH3862 of the prophetsH5030 prophesying,H5012 and SamuelH8050 standingH5975 as appointedH5324 overH5921 them, the SpiritH7307 of GodH430 was on the messengersH4397 of Saul,H7586 and they alsoH1571 prophesied.H5012
And when it was toldH5046 Saul,H7586 he sentH7971 otherH312 messengers,H4397 and they prophesiedH5012 likewise.H1571 And SaulH7586 sentH7971 messengersH4397 againH3254 the thirdH7992 time, and they prophesiedH5012 also.H1571
Then wentH3212 he alsoH1571 to Ramah,H7414 and cameH935 to a greatH1419 wellH953 that is in Sechu:H7906 and he askedH7592 and said,H559 WhereH375 are SamuelH8050 and David?H1732 And one said,H559 Behold,H2009 they be at NaiothH5121 in Ramah.H7414
And he wentH3212 thitherH8033 to NaiothH5121 in Ramah:H7414 and the SpiritH7307 of GodH430 was on him also,H1571 and he wentH3212 on, and prophesied,H5012 untilH5704 he cameH935 to NaiothH5121 in Ramah.H7414
And he strippedH6584 off his clothesH899 also,H1571 and prophesiedH5012 beforeH6440 SamuelH8050 in likeH1571 manner,H1571 and layH5307 down nakedH6174 allH3605 that dayH3117 and allH3605 that night.H3915 WhyH5921 H3651 they say,H559 Is SaulH7586 alsoH1571 among the prophets?H5030
